Warney's just grand!

Shane Warne celebrates his thousandth international dismissal

Sydney, Fifth Test, Second Day: Australia 188/4 (Ponting 45; Harmison 2-34) v England 291 (Flintoff 89, Bell 71; Clark 3-62, McGrath 3-67, Lee 3-75)

England lost their last six wickets for only 46 runs - the five tail-enders adding just four between them - as Australia re-asserted their superiority at the SCG.

Shane Warne took the final wicket to fall - trapping Monty Panesar plum in front to pick up his 1,000th international wicket in his penultimate innings in the field, with pacemen Glen McGrath, Stuart Clark and Brett Lee bagging three wickets apiece.

Ricky Ponting falling victim to yet another Ashes run-out

Andrew Flintoff's knock aside, the only other bright spot for England on a sunny Sydney Wednesday was James Anderson running out Ricky Ponting, bringing back memories of the infamous Gary Pratt run-out during the last Ashes series:

Whatever did happen to the hilariously named Pratt after his 15 seconds of fame!?!
